TODAY'S THOUGHT

God wants to see prayers that are filled with genuine praise and thanksgiving for what He has done in the past. He wants our hearts to be filled with awe and gratitude for His blessings. He wants us to set up memorials in our hearts testifying to the provisions He has given us.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot is coming up short with its promised leverage funds for its National Disaster Resilience Program, but the program's manager says there's still time to catch up. The Minot Daily News reports that in its agreement with the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the city agreed to leverage almost $470 million for the program.
 
     Program manager John Zakian says Minot made the leverage offer when it submitted its application to the department on a project request for $191 million. The department awarded $74.3 million. Zakian says that Minot had an opportunity to negotiate with the department to reduce the leverage requirement but didn't do so before signing the program agreement in June 2016.
 
     The original leverage pledge included a $337 million city commitment over 30 years in support of the flood protection project.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot's convention and visitor's bureau has proposed a sales tax on food and beverages that would help generate the revenue it needs to stay competitive in the tourism industry. The Minot Daily News reports the proposed 1 percent tax that would affect restaurants and bars would accrue nearly $1 million. If approved, the collections could be included in Visit Minot's budget for 2019.
 
     A committee for Visit Minot is currently developing a plan to present to the City Council. The committee also plans to meet with the food and beverage industry to present information and garner feedback. Visit Minot's income has plummeted from $1.1 million to less than $450,000 due to an economic shift that caused its two income sources, lodging and rental car taxes, to drop.

     MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Trial likely will be delayed until next summer for an American Indian activist accused of inciting a riot during protests in North Dakota against the Dakota Access pipeline. Attorneys for Chase Iron Eyes said Friday they want to gather more evidence for their effort to present a "necessity" defense - arguing a crime was justified because it prevented a greater harm. Judge David Nelson called Iron Eyes "one of the premier cases" of the pipeline protest.

     SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Thirty-six attorneys general have signed onto a legal brief in support of South Dakota's bid to collect sales taxes from out-of-state internet retailers. South Dakota is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review whether retailers can be required to collect sales taxes in states where they lack a physical presence. The case could have national implications for e-commerce.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Thousands have welcomed Miss America Cara Mund back to her North Dakota hometown. About 2,000 people turned out Saturday for Mund's welcome-home party in Bismarck. Young girls and boys cheered when North Dakota's first Miss America appeared at the Bismarck Event Center. Mund told the crowd that - whether young girls are in North Dakota or in a rural area - they can make their dreams come true if they work hard.

    The 23-year-old was crowned Miss America in September. Saturday was her first homecoming party, and before the event she stopped at Sanford Children's Hospital to visit patients.

    Heidi Allbee brought her two girls, 10 and 3, to Mund's homecoming. Allbee told The Bismarck Tribune it's a "source for pride" for North Dakota to finally have a Miss America.
